Here Is A Look At Cardi B’s Top Hair Looks And Be Prepared To Have Some Serious Wig Envy

It’s not unusual to see Cardi B dance onto the stage or the red carpet with a brightly colored wig in shades we’ve never seen before. Those daring hair looks are usually courtesy of one of her many wigs, most of which she’s credited to hairdresser Tokyo Stylez. Stylez doesn’t just create wigs, she creates masterpieces — all perfectly installed, might I add.

You might remember the pulled back updo Cardi had at Rihanna’s 2019 Diamond Ball or the Rapunzel-esque red inches she wore for a Poison Ivy costume. To scroll through Stylez’s Instagram is to swim through a sea of flawlessly blended wigs.

Bursting onto the rap scene in 2016, on the sixth season of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York, Cardi made a name for herself in the beauty space with her down-to-there straight lengths in varying tones of cherry red, raven, and platinum. From short lilac pixies to waist-length rainbow varieties, Cardi isn’t afraid to try any hair look, and always looks great in them.

We’ve rounded up some of her best wig looks to prove just how many she must have. Our only question is where she keeps them all.

After COVID-19 made its way to the United States, Cardi B made a statement on Instagram Live, “Coronavirus. Shit is real. Shit is getting real.” The soundbite ended up getting remixed into a catchy dance song. She looked sensational in a bronze fishnet dress from TLZ L’Femme. The honey blonde highlights blended seamlessly into the caramel hair for a look we hope to see again on the entertainer in the future.

Cardi seems really into hair bows, as this is the second look with the style that she’s worn during quarantine. The rapper shared a close-up of the bubblegum pink wig to Instagram on Tuesday, April 28. She used half the wig to create a bow on the top of her head while the rest of the hair (except for the bangs) was tied into a low ponytail. We’re going to be watching closely to see if she experiments with any more bows while self-isolating.

In February of 2019, Cardi B wore this long, rainbow wig that we couldn’t look away from.

Cardi’s look at the NBA All-Star Game in February was next level luxury. She styled the perfectly slicked-back, length ponytail with a fur vet and a purple Birkin bag that was just so extra. The garnet wig was slicked back into this low, side ponytail. We need the details on the styling products ASAP because not a single hair is out of place.

Her Lilac Look

At a party during Super Bowl weekend, the rapper’s wig was short and lilac with magenta streaks.

In April, the performer went live on Instagram to discuss a few political issues with Sen. Bernie Sanders. She made her appearance in this gorgeous cobalt blue wig. Rather than do the typical space buns, the hair was pulled up into two large bows on either side of her head.

Cardi was a stunner in this half-up, half-down style with flipped ends. The throwback look comes with a twist – literally – as the front of the hair is in medium-sized Bantu knots. Fun fact: Although her wig may look black in some photos, it’s actually an indigo shade.

In September 2018, Cardi B stunned us with her sleek short blond bob wig and leopard sunglasses.

Our regular, degular, shmegular girl from the Bronx arrived at the Powerhouse NYC 2019 concert in this nurse costume just before Halloween. This super straight, waist-length crimson wig matches her outfit and bold rouge lip flawlessly.

Have you ever seen a wig as long as the one the rapper wore to the Global Citizens Concert in 2018?

This ultra-long wig’s raven-black space buns were accented with a thick, electric-pink stripe right down the center of its blunt bangs, making Cardi look like a character straight out of the Mortal Kombat video game. Even when wearing dark hair, she can’t resist having a pop of color added in somewhere.

Cardi B Says She’s Planning on Releasing a Line of Hair-Care Products For Afro-Latinas

Looks like Cardi B is following in Rihanna’s footsteps and getting into the beauty game! According to a recent Instagram post, the Bronx-born rapper is going to be releasing a line of hair-care products for Afro-Latinas this year.

“This year I will be coming out with a hair[care] line that I been working on at home for my hair and my daughter’s,” Cardi announced on Instagram on Tuesday.

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib)

She explained that the decision to make hair-care products for Afro-Latinas was inspired by her realization that it’s “time for people to educate themselves on nationality, race and ethnicity.”

“Being Hispanic/Latina don’t make your hair long, don’t make your skin light, or don’t make your face features slim, [e]specially Latin countries from the Caribbean islands,” she explained further. “DNA [has] something to do with your hair, not your nationality.”

As many Latinos know, many non-Latinos are uneducated about the diversity of Latinidad. People expect all Latinos to look like Eva Longoria or Salma Hayek. But as we know, Latino is an ethnicity, not a race. Latinos come in all different shades, with vastly different features.

The comments on Cardi’s post were elated at the news that she would be releasing hair-care products for Afro-Latinas.

“Thank you!!! I’m Panamanian and they act like we don’t exist!” wrote one fan.

“Hair doesn’t have ethnicity. It has texture. It’s not black hair or white hair. It’s curly hair or straight hair. Kinky hairy or curly. 4a or 4c. People just generalize it and don’t understand,” wrote another.

On Twitter, another fan wrote: “Ok fav let’s talk about the hair care line you talking about so I can buy it and I won’t have to keep making the mask, forget everything else.”

Cardi’s decision to make hair-care products for Afro-Latinas came from (what else?) a Twitter argument.

When a Twitter user decided to challenge Cardi’s Blackness (again). The argument started when a Twitter user was claiming that Cardi’s hair pattern disqualifies her from being considered “Black.” So Cardi took it upon herself to educate her followers about the existence of Afro-Latinos. She also gave her followers a history lesson on the Dominican Republic.

The conversation got so frustrating that Cardi tweeted: “I think I’m going to do a video of different Hispanic people or Latin people or w.e. the correct term is nowadays. Cause people be thinking that every Hispanic is Mexican or something and must have the same hair texture, color, and features.”

Cardi B has always been passionate about hair-care. Last year, she shared a DIY hair mask recipe that she uses on her and Kulture’s rizos.

The hair mask consisted of argan oil, castor oil, olive oil, and mayonnaise. Since then, the at-home hair mask has gained a small but vocal fan club online.

If her hair mask recipe is a preview for things to come, we can’t wait to buy Cardi B’s hair-care products for Afro-Latinas.

Cardi B and Candace Owens Reignite Their Feud on Twitter After Owens Calls Cardi a ‘Cancer’ on Black Culture

Cardi B and Candace Owens Reignite Their Feud on Twitter After Owens Calls Cardi a ‘Cancer’ on Black Culture

Cardi B and Candace Owens have a long and storied history together. The two outspoken women haven’t exactly been the best of friends over the years. The conservative media personality has often gone after Cardi’s hypersexual music and persona.

Cardi B and Candace Owens’ rivalry started last year when Candace Owens called Cardi an “illiterate rapper“. Since then, there has been no love lost between the two women.

On the heels of Cardi B’s raunchy Grammys performance, Candace Owens took to Fox News to complain about the effect that Cardi’s music is having on America’s culture.

“Virtually what we were looking at last night was a lesbian sex scene being simulated on television,” Owens told host Tucker Carlson. “And this is considered feminist.”

Owens went on to describe Cardi B’s performance as a “destruction of American values and American principles.”

And she didn’t end there. She continued: “You’re actually actively trying to make children aspire to things that are grotesque,” she said. “We are celebrating perversity in America.”

Owens hammered it home by saying that parents should be “terrified” that I his is the direction that our society is heading towards.”

Well, if Candace Owens thought that the criticism would hurt Cardi’s feelings, she was dead wrong. The next day, Cardi took to Twitter to celebrate the fact that she “made Fox news”.

As part of her thank you speech, Cardi B thanked Candace Owens (whom she calls “Candy”) for “put[ting] my performance on Fox News, giving it more views that boosted the views on YouTube and is counting towards my streams and sales.”

Owens quickly hit back, Tweeting: “I don’t work for Fox News, Belcalis, nor do I take issue with you having success. I take issue with you being used to encourage young women to strip themselves of dignity. Men typically treat women how they treat themselves. You know that.”

Presumably, Owens was referring to the fact that Offset has cheated on Cardi in the past.

And just like Cardi, she wouldn’t take Candace Owens’ clapback lying down. Instead, she brought Melania Trump into the ring.

“No! Candy, men treat women on how a woman allows a man to treat them,” she wrote. “I mean look at Melania, she was a porn star. However, she didn’t allow Trump to treat her as [such] or shame her for her past. And [he] made her into a First Lady & the mother of his child,” she wrote.

And to top it off, she accompanied this tweet with a nude photo of Melania Trump from her modeling days (one that we will not post here). She followed that post up with a Tweet saying that “W.A.P.” was “inspired by our former First Lady”.

In response, Owens accused Cardi of being “obsessed” with the Trump family while saying that Melania Trump has “evolved” while Cardi has not.

Then the escalated and became heated and incredibly personal. Owens called Cardi a “cancer” on Black culture, and added that there’s “no person in America who can look you in the face and honestly say they wish they’re daughters turned out like you.”

In response, Cardi posted a video of Candace Owens bragging about making a sandwich for her husband. “I’m making my husband a sandwich, of course. Because that’s what a woman should do. Be making her husband a sandwich when she’d nine months pregnant and barefoot.”

At this point, the gloves were obviously off. Cardi B asked Candace: “And black women should be more like you?”

It was around this time that onlookers saw that Cardi B and Candace were actually truly heated.

“If you think making your husband a sandwich is a sin, but popping your vagina into another woman’s vagina in front of the world is power— you are a lost soul,” wrote Candace Owens.

Cardi B hit back: “It’s not a sin, but claiming ‘That’s what a woman supposed to do’ set us women, Black or white, to hundreds of years back. You have your own show and voice because women fought for years for us to be free to do what we please. NOT to be in a kitchen being submissive to a man.”

As of now, the feud doesn’t seem like it will be ending anytime soon. Head over to the rapper’s Twitter page to see the full feud between Cardi B and Candace Owens.
